Hena’s Blog For Paws covers everything that you need to know Animals and their Characteristics. All the articles cover about how would it be to have them as a Pet and how to deal with day to day care in assurance with the right method of training and discipling your Pet.
A useful information I have for you to share, which I feel most of us wouldn’t know.
One of the beautiful memories that I have is of, I once helped a crow as he was thirsty and somehow was injured, he fell in my garden, so I went up to him gave him water, and a little piece of bread dipped so it is not dry for him to eat. the weather was so hot and humid that I was afraid that he would die due to the killing heatwave, but alhumdulillah I managed to get him in the shade and there he rested, ate and drank water. Upon evening, I went outside to look for him, there I saw him sitting at the edge of my house’s wall, I was so happy to see that he was doing all fine. Later the next day, he came along with his other friends and kept calling me until I arrived and I gave all of them food…And since that day, that crow along with his friends did visit me.
Nature is beautiful, it is the Humans who need to understand. Think about it.
Did you know if you help someone in need, you actually help yourself. You don’t do it because he needs help, it is because you feel that how that person would be feeling and since you’re in that situation, so you tend to help them. Similarly, when you help an innocent soul from their misery, you’re actually saying a prayer to your Lord, to help you in your tasks, to what you desire.
There is a sudden flash back that I wish to share here. Few months ago, there was a disabled cat that was found around in my neighborhood, I spotted her once limping from her hind leg and was in a bad shape, felt as if she didn’t eat food in a while. I went to home as I saw her during my laps, I grabbed a clean bowl, poured Cat food and went along to find her as she literally went out of sight just within few minutes. After around good thirty minutes, I spotted her again and quickly went towards her, she kept looking at me and then starting running towards me as if she was my lost pet!! Yes, can you believe it. That moment was so startling for me as I was feeling so happy that the poor cat actually recognized me that I won’t harm her. She waited for me to put down the bowl and watched me whether I leave or stay. I simply told her to eat food and then I left the place. I went back home and then later after couple of hours, I see her sitting at the edge of my boundary wall and staring inside the window. When she looked at me, she let out a meow and then I replied, good girl. Probably she understood that I praised her that she ate her food, because after doing a little talking with her, I went out to check whether she ate her food or not, and guess what the whole bowl was empty!! I was so shocked because for a cat to eat that much, meant that she as probably damn hungry and it has been a while since she had anything that good.
I was so happy and contended that I helped a Cat in need and now even after few months, that Cat still visits me and sits at the same spot, other Cats know that I am the one who feeds the lot and takes care of them. So, other cats don’t bother at all. I really feel that it is not me who is doing good for animals, it is HE who is making me a better person each day by serving the Animals. It is not them who needs help, it is me and myself who seeks help and probably the prayers of these animals lead me to be what I am today.
It is easy to call yourself as an Animal Lover, but it is as difficult to ask yourself that what do you mean by being an Animal Lover? Let me help you in differentiating between the two because most of us are unable to define it properly. Being an Animal Lover means to love the existence of all sorts of Animals of the land and air, correct? being an Animal lover means having no discrimination between the Breeds or specific species of the Animals. Therefore, it is always corrected that when you call yourself as an Animal Lover, better know the meaning of it because if you are an Animal Lover then the population of the Animals in the Shelters won’t be increasing as this is called being Breed Conscious.
By looking at the image most of you would come with why are we only discussing about the population of the Cats rather than all, well, this is just an image to define that all the Animals at the shelters are eventually euthanized because nobody wants to adopt them, they would rather drop off their pet and take another one because of numerous reasons. Which leaves us in a situation where we are in a state of question and as as well speechless, that what did the little innocent buddy do to get here.
Shelter animals are not happy because they are eventually dropped off, abandoned, abused or even tortured or taken for granted as giving litters. It is horrendous! Therefore, it is always requested that yes it is really a good news if your Cat is pregnant but it is also not good to have litters because this way, only the population increases and later you won’t be taking up the responsibility of taking care of the litter once they grow up, because eventually it is all the food, litter, care, vaccinations, vet visits everything that comes with it. Always keep in mind, the health of your pet is most important first then anything else. Help the shelters by spaying your pet, this way your cat would remain healthy and there won’t be more burden at the shelter houses as well.
